Grateful Dead Press Conference
Grateful Dead Press Conference To Announce Partnership With UC Santa Cruz
The conference is over. We will be putting it up permanently on this page as soon as we get it.
(NOTE: Contrary to rumor, this has nothing to do with any sort of Dead reunion or tour)
Can anyone PLEASE help me to get a copy of the concert that Phil, Mickey and Bobby played as the fundraiser for Obama??? I cannot find it anywhere...firstname.lastname@example.org
The archive should definitely include examples of blotter art.
This is all making me feel old.
... but Bear can't live forever and it makes no sense for his stash to remain stuck in the land downunder. I wouldn't mind seeing some of Latvala's binders with his notes on his tape collection, show reviews, etc included in the collection. That's some really relevant stuff as far as I'm concerned.
Bear is one tough nut to crack when it comes to his stash.
I loved Mickey's warning to the archivists about not licking any of the papers ..... Great concept and a long time coming. There is a certain sense of redemption/satisfaction for having plunked down the $50 or bucks years back for the Terrapin Station release in support of the Dead's musuem that had possible chance (in hindsight) of getting of the ground.
I wonder if they will be contacting Bear for any of his materials.
i believe the announcement is that they are gonna move their archive to UC santa cruz... heyyy....wait a minute... i live in santa cruz!!! ....maybe we should all enroll!!
It was stated that UCSC would work with others, specifically the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, in loaning certain items for exhibition elsewhere. As a former Banana Slug, I'm totally stoked to go visit again, and again (and again!). :)
Posted a re-cap of the main points of the conference along with a couple of quotes by Bob and Mickey that I found a little humerous.
Love those guys! Missed Phil & Bill though... can't wait to see P+F and RatDog verrrry soon! =]
Sounds good, very well thought out. Great news for all.
